Whatever thin premises guide the Farrelly Brothers’ adaptation of The Three Stooges are lost in this 90-second trailer, but there’s plenty of physical comedy, true to the original. Not much else can be said about the clip, except that it’s got a steady stream of strange cameos, and it is set in modern times.

Though I’m not Stooges expert, the lead performances seem to run from good to great in their adherence to the source material. And the Farelly’s smartly busted the film up into three 30-minute segments to prevent fatigue from a dragging plot.

Despite those steps, the film just looks like a dud. Perhaps if I had a couple kids and wanted to veer away from the standard animated fare, I would take them to see this film, but I think that the whole concept of The Three Stooges just doesn’t appeal to the past couple generations. So there goes about 60% of film audiences.

Maybe I’m wrong, and people will appreciate the throwback and attention to detail, but it’s been my experience that most audiences don’t “appreciate” shit. This isn’t their type of dumb physical comedy. My hope was that the Farrelly’s would bring their irreverent humor of bygone films like Dumb and Dumber to this gig, but they seem hell bent on sticking to the old formula, save for some very bizarre cameos.

Anyway. Watch the trailer, and, who knows, if you’re also not seeing The Three Stooges on opening night, maybe we’ll run into each other.

‘Jersey Shore’ Cast In ‘Three Stooges’ Of Course http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jersey-shore-cast-bring-their-violent-arguing-to-three-stooges/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jersey-shore-cast-bring-their-violent-arguing-to-three-stooges/#comments Tue, 09 Aug 2011 16:47:22 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=224015 Acting Bug just one of the bugs to have bitten 'The Jersey Shore' cast.

Three stooges are clearly not enough for the Farrell Brothers. That’s why they gave the cast of Jersey Shore a cameo in their adaptation of The Three Stooges. JWoww and Sammi recently went on Access Hollywood to discuss their experience on the set and it appears that they’ve been bitten by the Acting Bug (which is probably the least of their bug-biting worries).

“For the Farrelly Bros to say how well we did… it gives me chills,” JWoww recalled.

Sammi elaborated. “Like, you never know,” she mused. “Like, I actually enjoyed acting, and I enjoyed being a part of it, so I would love to see what the future holds, whether it’s acting or something else.”

Castmates Ronnie and Snooki also reportedly want in on the action, according to Access Hollywood. “We’re not scared to be stupid or make fun of ourselves,” said Snooki. “I think we could be good in acting. I would love to do comedy.”

Seriously, you guys. Don’t tempt Adam Sandler. Just don’t. (Movieline)

Would The Three Stooges hit a guy with glasses? Answers point to yes.

There’s a role in the film for Larry David should he choose to take it. We don’t know exactly what that role is. Maybe he’s the guy that Sofia Vergara is trying to convince the Stooges to murder. Or maybe he plays an uncle from an older generation of Stooges who taught them their Stooge ways of verbal and physical abuse. Hate like that isn’t just born. It’s handed down from generation to generation.

Otherwise, let’s just expect him to play the guy who holds his arms awkwardly whenever on camera and looks like he’s going to crack a smile during the tensest moments. (EW)

Jane Lynch Proves To Be A Slightly Less Random Casting Choice For ‘Three Stooges’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jane-lynch-proves-to-be-a-slightly-less-random-casting-choice-for-three-stooges/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jane-lynch-proves-to-be-a-slightly-less-random-casting-choice-for-three-stooges/#comments Wed, 27 Apr 2011 22:52:44 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=209323 The Farrelly brothers cast Jane Lynch. Who do they think they are, Judd Apatow?

These days, with all the Gleeks and they’re painfully sanitized versions of popular songs sung by gay handicapped characters, it’s no wonder that Jane Lynch is such a hot property. Both resulting from and adding to that heat is news of her casting in Three Stooges as Mother Superior, the head of the orphanage where the trio of knuckleheads, wiseguys, and why-I-oughta’s grew up, unable to find loving families despite Mother Superior’s best efforts.

With the principals in place, it looks like the film is on track for its May production start. If nothing else, the public’s curiosity should be piqued by the apparent “monkey at a dartboard” casting approach that brings Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, Chris Diamantopoulos, Sofia Vergara, and Jane Lynch onto the set of a Farrell brothers film, remaking a TV show generations removed from the majority of moviegoers. That said, it’s got people poking each other in the eyes as a veritable plot point. How bad could it be? (Deadline)

Sofia Vergara Is Now Easily The Sexiest Actor In ‘The Three Stooges’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sofia-vergara-is-now-easily-the-sexiest-actor-in-the-three-stooges/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sofia-vergara-is-now-easily-the-sexiest-actor-in-the-three-stooges/#comments Wed, 06 Apr 2011 22:56:34 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=205752 I don't care if this casting decision makes any sense. I love it. It's genius.

Sofia Vergara is in talks to join The Three Stooges alongside Will Sasso, and Sean Hayes. Considering how random the casting of the leads has been thus far, it’s no surprise that they decided that a Latina beauty is a logical next step in the adaptation of a half-century old TV show.

Vergara, best known for her scene-stealing character in”Modern Family,” would have to really outdo herself to steal scenes in a “Three Stooges” film, but considering how well she milks her accent and milks her….”looks,” I wouldn’t put it past her.

The Farrelly Bros. have done a good job of keeping their casting interesting, so with so many pieces in place, it is now up to them to bring it all together. Something they haven’t excelled at in recent projects. Like, everything since Something About Mary. (Variety)

Knoxville To Play Moe For Those ‘Stooges’ The Farrelly Brothers http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/knoxville-to-play-moe-for-those-stooges-the-farrelly-brothers/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/knoxville-to-play-moe-for-those-stooges-the-farrelly-brothers/#comments Fri, 11 Mar 2011 03:48:30 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=201120 If the Farrelly's screw this one up, angry Three Stooges fans will not be giving them a hall pass.

The Farrelly Brothers used to make hilarious comedies like Kingpin and There’s Something About Mary. They’ve been a bunch of struggling stooges for over a decade now, so maybe it’s appropriate that their next film will be their long-discussed Three Stooges movie. Hopefully they won’t ruin this beloved property, like a couple of knuckleheaded, so-called interior decorators ruining a fancy lady’s home.

One sign they’re on the right track: hiring Johnny Knoxville to play Moe. Almost. The contract is being negotiated between Fox and Knox, so the Jackass star can bring his willingness to taser his own balls to this modern day Stooges update. He is the current reigning King of Getting His Ass Kicked For Laughs.

The film will be three long “shorts,” rather than a full-length narrative. One thing’s for sure: if the Farrelly’s screw this one up, angry Three Stooges fans will not be giving them hall pass. (Cinema Blend)

While they haven’t found the right knuckleheads for their Three Stooges film, the Farrell Brothers have mentioned a few of the folks who have been approached. Some are really interesting choices while the others are doo-doo.

Looks like they’ve moved away from trying to win an Oscar and have focused exclusively on comedic actors. While making the rounds for Hall Pass, the Farrellys have revealed the current state of casting. In competition for the role of Moe are Hank Azaria and Johnny Knoxville, Will Sasso leads the charge for Curly, and Larry has been offered to Larry David, Woody Harrelson, and Justin Timberlake.

Hmmm… really interesting choices in there. If it were up to me, I’d say Azaria, Sasso, and Harrelson are all perfect. As much as I’d like to see Justin Timberlake poked in the eyes, he’s just not the right fit. (via The Playlist)

Last week it was announced that Johnny Knoxville, Andy Samberg, and some Australian guy were likely to play the lead nitwits in The Three Stooges. Today, it’s being not announced. Um.

Peter Farrelly dispelled the report to Entertainment Weekly. “You don’t want people to think ‘they already cast that thing,’ because we haven’t. It’s wide open to everybody. Right now, there is no leader in the clubhouse.”

Which doesn’t mean those guys aren’t in the running, they’re just a few of the names up for the film. Farrelly also told EW that he and his brother are looking for actors who can do exact impressions of the original Stooges (Mel Gibson Comeback Tour 2011?). The director also noted that things were ready to go with an A-list cast until Sean Penn grew preoccupied with relief efforts in Haiti. Which means an earthquake prevented Hollywood from making a gross-out version of The Three Stooges. What was the over-under on that, NASA?
